32. They agree with his spin, but the fact remains that mass shootings

 

are on the rise, and 2012 has been the worst in 30 years. Basically this article spins it by saying it doesn't really matter:

But experts say it's the spectacular nature of the attacks that give public mass shootings such impact beyond the affected communities, with intense media coverage lending extra piquance: five or six or even seven attacks in one year may not be statistically significant, but they're emotionally resonant.


Nice debate strategy, but no cigar.
